. many of them were pointing a finger at hurricane sandy. that romney had momentum in the polls and after that the momentum was broken. and some said that obama had done enormous damage in may, june and july. but there were big issues at stake in this campaign. two different views of governing, higher taxes were more regulation and more spending and the vote terse chose president obama's. bill: now, you go to the issue of governing. what is the expectation of this group in washington now. >> i think that obviously president obama is going to try to use his victory which is very their coto press his agenda to raise taxes on higher income americans. i do not see republicans want to go give in on that at all. i think the fiscal cliff will be relatively unchanged. look at what we have had. we had this election. president obama is still going to be president. john bane letter still be speaker of the house and harry reid will still be the senate majority leader. not a lot has changed. bill: byron york. martha: just before 1:00 a.m. eastern time governor mitt romney stepped on the stage to thank

on the ad truthfulness or lack thereof. let me move you to hurricane sandy and something that karl rove, who as you know, was the architect of the bush campaign from the deputy white house chief of staff for george w. bush, and he said the washington post, "if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit, the debt, the economy. there was a stutter in the campaign. when you have attention drawn away to somewhere else, to something else, it is not to his -- meaning governor romney's -- advantage." do you think that hurricane sandy or superstorm sandy and the president's handling of it stopped mitt romney's momentum and helped the president? >> you know, i don't know. i can't judge that. i have been here in ohio watching on tv some of the scenes, including on your network yesterday of people who are really frustrated, which is, you know, typical of the natural disaster like this. our hearts go out to those folks, but it's tough for government to be able to respond. i don't know how it plays honestly. i know that right now if
searching moment is they still thing that romney was on the rise until hurricane sandy hit. >> is there anything in exit polls that suggests that -- that that froze the race? >> not that it froze the race but 42% of the electorate said that hurricane sandy was a factor or a small factor in their decision and obama carried them handily. i think it goes back if you're talking about the economic question. this economy was not so bad that it guaranteed that the president was going to lose. political scientist that i spoke to said you guys are writing about the unemployment rate being at a historically high level for someone to try to get re-elected or that the growth rates are lukewarm, anemic but in reality it was enough not to guarantee election but to get him over the top. and if you look at the exit polls again, he did not lose the economic argument. he didn't win it decisively but governor romney didn't win it decisively. gwen: we promised you that there would be truth and consequence. first up, for the president and the house speaker as the government faces mandatory year
a strong first debate he wasn't able to keep the momentum going. then came hurricane sandy that took the focus off romney in the final week of the campaign. romney had expected to win. earlier in the day he told reporters he had written only one speech, a victory speech. >> it's about 1,118 words, and i'm sure it will change before i'm finished because i haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reaction. >> reporter: but in the end he delivered a concession speech, lasting just five minutes. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader, and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. >> reporter: you could see the sadness in romney as he gave that speech last night. it was a hard-fought campaign and as you said he didn't leave anything on the table. not only was it the end of the campaign after those 17 months on the campaign trail, it also is most likely the end of romney's political life,
over the federal recovery response to hurricane sandy. now thousands in some of the hardest hit areas like staten island new york telling fox news they feel forgotten. >>> my children and i and my mother are suffering. we are struggling to find a place to even be to all be together and to have clothes and to have all of the food and all of the stuff given to us, it means a lot to us. it means a lot to our community. there are so many people on our blocks down the block from us, too, are devastated. don't know what to make of it. it is horrendous. >> what are you going to do, mom? >> i don't know. >> so sorry. >> that story and that scene plays out all over this region. especially in the state of new jersey. folks it's cold in the northeast. heather childers is live in jersey city. what's the latest from over there today. good morning. what are you hearing? >> good morning. i have to tell you things look a little bit better here in jersey city. only about 10,000 people still without power here in this area. 1.7 million across the state of lines like this. gas lines you were talking abo

lucky. this time the october surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of got. hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidential and bipartisan. so let me get this right. the -- mr. romney was soundly beaten both in the popular vote and the electoral college and the swing states that mattered the most? and it was all because of hurricane sandy? >> yeah, i think a less charitable person might be saying "and the dog ate my homework." in the 1980s, karl rove, a young political operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electoral gold mine, which he succeeded. in that memo, he wrote the words, when things are going badly, attack, attack, attack. that has always his motif. in this case, things went very, very badly, involving many very wealthy, very influential people, and his reaction is just attack the other guy. >> let me ask you this quickly. you've written two books, you know it very well d this tarnish the brand of k

during an unseasonably cold spell in the northeast. adding to the damage left by hurricane sandy. a nor'easter blew through the east coast yesterday, dumping snow and rain on a region that's barely begun to dig out from sandy. we've got new pictures from staten island where several inches of wet snow are threatening to topple already weakened trees. power was knocked out to some 60,000 homes in newark and new jersey overnight. many of which had just had their service restored after many days in the dark. there's also renewed headaches for millions of commuters as passenger trains grind to a halt, and at least 1,300 flights are kept at the gates at the airports. let's go to meteorologist bill karins for a look at what is unfolding here. bill. >> good morning. before i get to the details, talking about joe's point there, nine days apart between these two events. i can almost guarantee you go back through history of hurricane landfalls, and i don't think any area has ever seen a snowstorm nine days after they dealt with a storm surge like we had with sandy. i mean, it's just ridiculous tha
this on sandy or a divisive primary. you can blame this on the following. you have a republican party that no longer reflect what is america looks like. you have a republican party that was rightly or wrongly, perceived to be disenfranchising latinos and women -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the popular vote, it is evenly divided. >> look at the gender -- >> dirty divisive -- [overlapping dialogue] >> excuse me. the election is over. look at the returns. obama won the latino voters -- >> it doesn't matter how we -- >> let me finish my point. >> julie, finish your point. >> as i said, rightly or wrongly, you have a republican party perceived by latinos as wanted being on there side, women, want on their side. if the republican party doesn't understand they have to expand their brand and they are no longer representing white men, they will continue to lose. the more they fight that fact, the longer you will have results like this. >> promoting riskal responsibility only represents the white male brand. >> the race is over. we are discussing demographics. >> unwaivering supporter from barac
for mitt romney. the president captured just about every other group. and just over a week after sandy devastated the northeast, a powerful new storm brings more misery to the hardest hit areas. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> president obama's due back in washington in the next hour. a triumphant return to the white house that will be his home for another four years. a bitter election campaign ended with the president taking virtually all the key swing states beating mitt romney just about every place where it mattered most. but congress will remain divided meaning democrats and republicans must immediately start finding some ways to deal with the prospect of an urgent new financial crisis. in his victory speech, the president said americans voted for action. and he's already called congressional leaders to discuss his agenda. the house speaker, john boehner, says both sides now must work together. and he hints at compromise on tax reform. in the end, president obama won just about all of t

't moving in pennsylvania. and they felt at that point they were flattened by sandy. i don't think this race was close enough to be impacted by a hurricane. >> no. >> but that's certainly what they believe. >> chris christie, yes, springsteen's his buddy, and springsteen may have brought him over. i think that people -- i was in ohio a couple weeks ago. you know, there's great wealth in ohio. there are companies that have given out billions of dollars to people in ohio because there's oil and gas everywhere. and the whole northeast ohio was flooded withal abouts of dollars of oil money. those people are not unhappy. >> andrea, we saw it early on, and we were talking about how the right track/wrong track in ohio shifted six months ago. mitt romney, i think, one of the pivotal moments when mitt romney told john kasich, stop bragging about your economy in ohio. ohio was a leading indicator. >> it was a leading indicator. you know, the other thing about that mitigates against agreement is the people who were elected in the house, and they picked up seats. the democrats did miserably. i think you

number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u

. well, until hurricane sandy, all the polls showed that it was really a much titler race, and let's again look at the reality that the popular vote was still rather close. >> bill: right. >> and it could very well be that it took, again you hate to see a tragedy like sandy crystallizing votes, but the whole emotional content of the electorate shifted because people saw it wasn't just a storm, a bit of distraction for mitt romney, it showed the public what government was about, the slogan should have been after that, who rebuilt that, the public really saw and i think we talked about that on the show, the necessity of a government that builds, that comes in was clear to everybody. good 2% to 3% have the vote right there. >> bill: i remember the headline a big storm requires big government. they really summed it up. eliot, we'll let you go back to bed. get another hour of sleep. thank you for getting up for us this morning. >> it's great to get up today. >> bill: congratulations to you and all the current team, as well. etteout spitzer see him at 8:00 p.m. on current tv. >> announce
surprise was hurricane sandy, with the bloomberg endorsement, christie, a bipartisan appeal, etc. on the right, you see them looking over their shoulder in terror of being taken on in primaries. yesterday four of the five members in congress targeted by the leak of co conservation went down in defeat. they were targeted for taking anti-science positions and independent districts. is the ice stunning to melt and break up in the republican party owith this reign of terror of the no-nothing wing of climate science? is there an opening for the administration to go more boldly on climate? >> is sandy a turning point? >> the whole discussion of climate change has become so polarized that i think that if we can address some of our economic challenges, if we can address some of our immigration challenges, there are things that are a whole lot higher on the priority list and trying to overcome the divine on that. eventually the progress of science will be persuasive to more and more people. but right now it has become so divisive that i wouldn't look for any sort of immediate rapprochemen
